  • Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan holds a dose of Bharat Biotech's COVID-19 vaccine called COVAXIN during a vaccination campaign at All India Institute of Medical Sciences hospital in New Delhi India

Vijayalakshmi, along with other doctors and staff members, got the vaccine from the first vial at the Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Tadepalli.

GGH Guntur superintendent Dr G Prabhavati said that the patient had suffered a brain stem stroke and died of the same on Sunday. The woman's family shifted her to the NRI General Hospital at Mangalagiri on January 21 and the GGH in Guntur the next day. After primary treatment, she was admitted to the GGH. She was disoriented, with incoherent speech and drooling.

Her death triggered a protest with hundreds of ASHA workers staging a sit-in at the GGH demanding that the family of the deceased should be given a job, farm land and ₹50 lakh as compensation. "But none had any adverse reaction other than this single case", Guntur collector Samuel Anand Kumar said. He assured them of a job and land and promised to take up the compensation issue with the Chief Minister's Office. Over the past nine days, 28,613 vaccination sessions have been held in the country.

"Her post-mortem examination has been completed but we could not establish anything". While officials said the death seemed to be unrelated to vaccination, a post-mortem examination revealed heart failure as the reason. However, we have to make a detailed investigation. In fact, her mother had a similar stroke past year.

The cumulative number of vaccinated healthcare workers across the country stands at 16,13,667 as of January 24. "After battling for life for two days, she passed away in the early hours of Sunday", said the victim's son. She said they are waiting for an autopsy report of Vijayalakshmi to know the exact cause of her death.

The 44-year old ASHA worker complained of severe headache and fever on January 22, three days after she took a shot of the coronavirus vaccine.

"About 11,000 health care workers received the vaccine in the district".

The District AEFI committee which is examining the death of the female healthcare worker will submit its report to the State AEFI committee, which will in turn hand it over to Central AEFI committee.
